Senior Services

LCPL Senior Services

WHAT IS SENIOR SERVICES?

Senior Services assists those who cannot easily access branch locations by delivering Library materials through visits and the Books-By-Mail program.

Staff regularly visit senior centers, independent and assisted living facilities, and nursing homes throughout Loudoun County. Librarians bring a full variety of materials including large print books and magazines, DVDs, music CDs, audiobooks – and smiles.

Residents choose from a wide selection of genres, ranging from old-time favorites to current best-sellers, and may request items online or with the assistance of the visiting librarians. Either way, the Library items are delivered, checked-out, and returned by Outreach Services staff.

Where we go

Senior Services visits assisted living facilities and senior lunch sites to deliver Library materials and to provide assistance selecting and requesting Library materials and information.

We also travel to nursing homes, Adult Day Centers, and the County Juvenile Detention Facility to deliver pre-selected and requested library materials.

Books-By-Mail: Through postage free service, Senior Services mails large print books and audiovisual materials to customers who are physically unable to visit the library due to age, disability, or illness, whether permanent or temporary.  Click here to obtain a copy of the Books-By-Mail Application.
